Snapper walk behind makes noise in high gear like a train

15 years ago

Hi, I've got a new to me Snapper walk behind mower (2004 model) and when the drive speed is in the medium to high settings, a rumble starts that sounds like a train going down the tracks. The noise only happens when the drive is not engaged (sitting idle). Once you engage the drive and start moving, the noise stops. I've never had a Snapper before so I was wondering if this is normal or is a bearing on the drive mechanism going out? Thank you!
